Sandy Denny and Fotheringay: not three winners but four
Long distance information

Banks of the Nile

One of my favourite entries in the Sandy Denny/Fotheringay competition told of the night in Manchester when, having endured a million cries for Banks of the Nile, Sandy called out, as encores were demanded, something like: "So you want Banks of the Nile?"

And then launched into Memphis Tennessee.

I am off to the Banks of the Nile, on holiday, without calling into Memphis or passing Go. There is lots to read here if you wish. You can even say something, by way of a Comment, on any posting that appears here.

Back early December, with pieces on Bellowhead, year-end critics' polls (I'll declare my choices) and more. Oh yes, and much more on Fotheringay........à bientôt.

I wonder if Sandy remembered that Memphis Tennessee takes its name from Memphis in Egypt - which is indeed on the banks of the Nile?
